PM Modi pays tributes to Indian soldiers of WWI who fought for peace" width="738" />
India, he said, remembered its brave soldiers who fought in WW-1. “This was a war in which India was not directly involved yet our soldiers fought world over, just for the cause of peace,” he added.
“I have had the honour of paying tributes at the Neuve-Chapelle Memorial in France and at the memorial in Israel’s Haifa, places associated with India’s role in the First World War. When PM Benjamin Netanyahu came to India, we paid tributes at the Teen Murti-Haifa Chowk,” Mr Modi said.
The day commemorates the end of the first major war that claimed an estimated 40 million lives, including many Indians, that ended at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. (UNI)
